You enter in a warm place where the wood tables and chairs in combination with the old marionettes hanging from the top is very challenging to spend a lot of hours in there!

This place is located right across from the Mannekin Pis so you can see the little guy and then head for a drink. Inside its decorated with marionettes and tons of Brussels and Belgian memorabilia. They serve snacks as well as wine, coffee, and soft drinks - however, the whole point is to go for the beer! The beer list... More

This place is brilliant - I'm not a beer drinker at all, but after a couple of hours in this place I was converted. Huge range on offer, fantastic atmosphere, friendly and very efficient staff. Couldn't fault it! Our new favourite place in Europe!

This place is a hidden gem. The ambience is incredible. Real nice buzz to the place. The walls are covered with various artefacts, tat and nik-naks. It's full of character. But lets be honest, this place is all about the beers. The list is endless and features some real oddities that you will struggle to find elsewhere. If I get... More

A small but good hearty menu and big portions, plus more beers than you could hope to try in a lifetime! Service was friendly and the atmosphere was cosy. Good central location by the Mannequin Pis.

It's beyond my understanding why so many people go there at all. The way we've been treated tonight by the most incompetent waiter of all Belgium is just insulting. First, we were offered a forlorn table in a dark area downstairs, where we had to wait nearly 30 minutes to be waited on. Then this halfwit took our orders full... More

Great little bar/restaurant close to the Mannekin Pis statue. Excellent house wines, great beer and full of character. Staff were uber friendly and very efficient. Will definitely return next time I am in Brussels.
